Long Description:
NRHP Nomination Form

"The 1899 Central Christian Church is a 2-story Late Gothic Revival brick building with a raised basement. The walls of the raised basement are constructed of multiple shades of buff bricks laid in the American Bond pattern. This relatively short base is topped by a protruding, five-inch cast stone ledge, which also serves as a sill for the building's numerous stained glass windows. The middle section, which extends to the spring point of the building's pointed arch openings, is constructed with hard-fired orange bricks, also laid in the American Bond pattern. A string course consisting of three rows of buff bricks and a rounded cast stone ledge caps this middle section. The cast stone ledge continues around the pointed arch openings, also constructed of buff bricks, with cast stone spring points and keystones. The walls' upper section, extending to the cornice line of the hipped roof and continuing into the gables, features hard-fired orange bricks arranged in a decorative pattern. Alternating bricks laid in a mousetooth pattern are arranged in evenly spaced, vertical rows that break up the walls' flat planes to create a unique and striking visual effect."

Artist: architect, James E. Flanders.
